The commentator/reviewer said at the beginning that a movie like this, if made today, would have been immediately brought to the censor’s firing squad. Back to Back, Face to Face is a movie that quite baldly depicts the complicated “office politics” in China. Many admirers of China apparent wealth and specious progress (that includes Westerners like Kissinger and academics like Kishore Mahbubani) have no idea what really goes on behind the scenes. This movie is unbelievably truthful. If you can’t even understand this, how can you say that you know China?
